Routledge, 28.07.2016 - 222 Seiten

First published in 1975, this study is concerned with the representation of non-European people in English popular fiction in the period from 1858-1920. It examines the developments in thinking about people across the world and shows how they affected writers’ views of evolution, race, heredity and of the life of the so-called ‘primitive’ man.

This book will be of interest to those studying 19th century literature.
